Aeriel Tiffany’s Design Chosen for Statewide 2014 MAW Art Contest

Ware County senior Aeriel Tiffany recently participated in a regional art contest, the 2014 Manufacturing Appreciation Week (MAW) Student Design Competition sponsored by Okefenokee Technical College. Her design, which names numerous area manufacturers, was selected for entry in the state student design competition sponsored by the Technical College System of Georgia and the Georgia Department of Economic Development.

Manufacturing Appreciation Week is an annual event that recognizes the contribution of manufacturing to Georgia’s economy. Students who wish to participate in the art contest are asked to depict the importance of manufacturing to their lives and communities through a design. Okefenokee Technical College (OTC) sponsors an area competition as part of the statewide effort.

The top three statewide winners in each age category (Grades K-5, Grades 6-8, and Grades 9-12) will be honored at the Governor’s Awards Luncheon April 17 at the Georgia International Convention Center in Atlanta. In addition to Tiffany’s work, OTC officials submitted designs created by Pierce County middle and elementary school students.

Contest coordinators hope that, as part of the contest process, area children will research information on manufacturing and learn that a career in manufacturing can be so much more than assembly line work. “We want students to know that manufacturers provide jobs for engineers, scientists, advertisers and many others in our state.”
Manufacturing Appreciation Week 2014 is celebrated this week, April 14 - 18, 2014.
